The Burger: Duchamp is almost too upscale to deserve mention on this list, except for the fact that in a city famed for its love of red meat, this one is a whopper. Chef Michael Taus bakes Czechoslovakian cottage-cheese-and-dill rolls from his grandmother’s recipe to pair with an eight-ounce burger, made with ground chuck blended with trimming scraps from local meat purveyor L&L Packing Company.

Best Sides: Garlic-and-Romano cheese fries.
